Can't really tell what the early show was like, but this set features an amazing Eleven & Lovelight. Although the rest of the show is just good standard well-played GD, this show is a favorite of mine for some early nice-sounding use of the Fender Strat which Garcia was in the process of learning how to get a "sweet sound" with, as opposed to his earlier use of the Gibson SG, which didn't quite have the twang he wanted on some of the newer stuff. This is one of the first shows where, in my opinion, he really gets it figured out.

The beginning of the end of psychedelia and the folksier, western Dead...
Bobby sings Dire Wolf! Jerry plays sweet pedal steel, and it's like the light switch turns on

since there are only 2 reviews..
this is most excellent. this era of the Dead, where they were shifting from psychedelic to country rock, is one of my favorites. Bravo!!

since there's only one review......
sound quality (for a '69 show) is excellent.
that's 90% of any show.

A laid back but powerful 1969 Grateful Dead power packed show, some cool country roots at the beginning there too!
